wops i guess i missed that step...
i feel silly
Caution: Don't touch /var/lib/pacman/local! This is the pacman database.
To know or not to know ...
... the questions remain forever.
I'm afraid I messed something up heavily, partly because of this update:
I hadn't upgraded my system for a while due to an hw problem;
I wanted to set my video card up (there was some problem with a new bios version hiding the intel gpu to me, so now I only have nvidia gpu), so before pacman -Syu, I did
# paman -R xf82-video-intel intel-dri # pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils lib32-nvidia-utils
but nvidia didn't install properly, so I found the announcement and ran:
# paman -Syu --ignore glibc # pacman -Su
but the second command failed and now I keep getting this:
# pacman -whatever (even --help) pacman: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.16` not found (required by /usr/lib/lib.curl.so.4) # curl curl: /lib/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.16` not found (required by /usr/lib/lib.curl.so.4)
(there might be typos, I copied it by hand)
I also tried running pacman after this (I thought it could not harm, even if I didn't really understand what is happening)
# export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/lib:/usr/lib
with the same result.
(btw, afret rebooting I can't even mount my xfs /home partition, but I guess it will fix if I can manage to fix pacman)
Thanks a lot
Just noticed: the file /lib/libc.so.6 is a symlink to /lib/libc-2.15.so. Is there a way to downgrade curl without pacman?
